Lamont seeks drought relief from USDA

HARTFORD — Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced on Monday, Sept. 12 that he has sent a request to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for approval of primary natural disaster declarations in Litchfield and New Haven counties for damages sustained by agricultural producers during the drought.

In his request Lamont noted that Litchfield and New Haven counties have experienced the same drought as other counties in the state,

“While some of our counties have already received this designation, Litchfield and New Haven counties are now above the 30% crop-loss trigger required for a similar declaration” Lamont said.
